  1. If it's wrong of me to start up this topic, moderators please remove! But I noticed that several mentions of 'Raymonda' have been made within the 'Giselle' thread and I know that many of us will be looking forward to this production with great excitement. So I thought maybe we could share our information and general enthusiasm a bit beforehand? The first performance is on 13 January 2022. I think this is a very bold and exciting venture for ENB and I very much hope all the investment of time, money and artistic enterprise pays off. It's quite long. Something for a dancer, and an audience, to get their metaphorical teeth into. I love the way Rojo has slightly updated the scenario whilst not making it horribly modern; this is the reactionary in me writing! What I mean is - the costumes are still visually interesting, even beautiful, not monochrome leotards. And the updated story sounds worthwhile and intriguing. I am already looking forward to January.

  3. A Sadler’s Wells Production Sylvie Guillem & Russell Maliphant PUSH LONDON COLISEUM Tuesday 29 July - Sunday 3 August Performances: Tue, Wed, Fri & Sat at 7.30pm, Sun at 2.30pm. No performance Thur Tickets: £12- £90 Ticket Office: 0844 412 4300 or www.sadlerswells.com After sell-out seasons around the world, Sadler’s Wells’ critically acclaimed production PUSH returns to the London Coliseum from 29 July - 3 August 2014, featuring Sadler’s Wells Associate Artists Sylvie Guillem and Russell Maliphant. PUSH showcases four works choreographed by Maliphant and is made up of solos and duets performed by Maliphant and Guillem, who first collaborated in 2003 with Broken Fall. Two and Solo are dazzling solos performed by Guillem; Push is a duet for Guillem and Maliphant; and Shift is Maliphant’s seminal 1996 solo. The works are complemented by stunning lighting by Olivier Award-winning lighting designer and Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Michael Hulls, and accompanied by music from Andy Cowton, Carlos Montoya and Shirley Thompson. Since its debut in 2005, PUSH has received four major awards: an Olivier Award, a Time Out Award, Best Choreography (Modern) at the National Dance Awards and the South Bank Show Dance Award. Sylvie Guillem was born in Paris and trained in gymnastics under the instruction of her mother, a gymnastics teacher. In 1977 she began training at the Paris Opera Ballet School, and in 1981 joined the company's corps de ballet. She was promoted to the rank of "Etoile" by Rudolf Nureyev at the age of 19. Guillem has performed all the leading roles of the classical repertoire with the world's leading companies including the Royal Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, Kirov, Tokyo Ballet, Australian Ballet, American Ballet Theatre and La Scala. Guillem’s awards include the Officier de la Légion d’Honneur, Officier dans l’Ordre National du Mérite, Officier des Arts et Lettres, and, in Britain, an honorary CBE. Russell Maliphant trained at The Royal Ballet School and graduated into Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet before leaving to pursue a career in independent dance. He danced with DV8, Michael Clark, Rosemary Butcher and Laurie Booth. He formed his Company in 1996. He has also collaborated with renowned companies and artists including Robert Lepage, Isaac Julian, Balletboyz and Lyon Opera Ballet. In 2011 Maliphant was awarded an honorary doctorate of arts from Plymouth University. He became an Associate Artist of Sadler’s Wells in 2005. Maliphant’s most recent Sadler’s Wells production, Still Current, is touring internationally.
  4. I never sit in the stalls, not only because of the cost but also because I worry about the view. What is the raking like? In practice, is your view likely to be obscured if you are not tall, like me? Do you have to look up to the stage? When I (rarely) buy more expensive tickets I opt for circle seats but I would like to try the stalls once to see what it is like being really close to the dancers. Apologies if this subject has been covered before. I am particularly interested in hearing about the stalls at the Coliseum.
  5. Well, tonight saw the first night of the Mikhailovsky's London run: a pretty packed Coliseum, by all accounts, to watch Giselle with Osipova and Vasiliev. Please post your views on the entire run in this thread rather than the general Bolshoi/Mariinsky/Mikhailovsky thread.
